At the Ohio Masonic Home, Browning Masonic Community and Western Reserve Masonic Community our goal is to partner with people on their aging journey so they can age respectfully, how they want and where they want. One of the ways this is accomplished is through social events and day trips to everywhere from parks and theatres to museums and grocery stores. We also provide transportation for our residents to and from medical and other like appointments. Browning Masonic Community currently has one 14 passenger bus with wheelchair capacity. Because of the increasing demand for transportation of residents in wheelchairs to necessary medical appointments, the bus is often unavailable. This has caused the cancellation of many resident outings. While medical appointments are a necessity, resident trips are also very important. Western Reserve currently has one 14 passenger bus with wheelchair capacity. Over the years this bus has been used on almost a daily basis to transport our residents to all kinds of destinations. It has served the community very faithfully providing all kinds of enjoyment and socialization. However, the bus is now nearing the end of its useful life. With each trip the bus rides become more and more uncomfortable, to the point where many residents are hesitant to attend outings which they used to look forward to. This is unacceptable because resident trips are very important in providing social and emotional well-being. The solution to these problems is to purchase new buses with the capacity for wheelchairs or scooters. We ask that you join us in helping provide our residents a wide range of travel possibilities. Please consider making a monetary gift to the Western Reserve Masonic Community Bus Campaign or the Browning Bus Campaign. Together we can ensure our residents will continue to age respectfully, how they want and where they want. To make a donation, please send your check to the Ohio Masonic Home Foundation, 2655 West National Road, Springfield, Ohio 45504 and write “Browning Bus Campaign” or “Western Reserve Bus Campaign” in the memo line.
